Pinewood Derby Time Again

My husband is awesome. It's pinewood derby time in Singapore. Just like other Cub Scout packs everywhere, a whole bunch of dads make cars for competition and the boys don't get to do much but not at our house. We both help them mark their pristine blocks of wood with the most practical reality of their vision each year. Then dad does the cutting with the saw. The kids love it.

This year we went to the clinic as used the pack band saw. It was great. We even spray painted them and didn't have the mess at my house. It was long and outside so really hot and humid but worth it.

Maddie has a good looking basic blue car. Jacob wanted his to he exactly like the car on the box and loves that he got to spray paint it orange. Ben has had a vision in his head for months. He wanted a pencil looking car. I think it looks fantastic.

Funniest part of the day was when Brian and I were talking and he said, "After last year I thought Ben had finally caught the vision of how to win." Last year he was so sad to see his car wasn't incredibly fast. He had talked and talked about how he was going to focus and have it be really great this year. Now that its here, we are back to aesthetics. Hopefully Brian can get it all weighted properly so it can still do pretty well on the big day in addition to looking awesome.
